IMPERIOUS REX.  

POD PARENT:

ALL THINGS TO ALL MEN     TET 47607 [Repeat the Sounding Joy x (sdlg x Fountain of Life)], where the seedling includes Shaka Zulu, Breaking My Heart, Rock of Salvation, Belle Cook, and Heartbeat of Heaven. 5.5 to 6” depending in how recurved, 28” (range of 24-30”), 5-way branching with 3 laterals and a V (range of 2-7 way, but 3-way if in bad soil or crowded), 33 buds (range of 20-40), Sev, M, instant Rebloom (including in MN on some fans in some years), fr. Dark pink lavender with etched gray lavender eye; gray lavender plus ivory plus yellow edge; yellow to green throat. Great opener in the low 60’s. Eyezone has “echoes” in the greenhouse (greenhouse pictures are shown after the dried up scapes) but almost never outside, and passes those on to some of its kids. Those of you who have ordered from me in the past know that I am very straightforward when describing the pluses and minuses of my plants. This one is lovely outside when at its best, but from time to time it will show “pinprick” spotting. And one year 10% of my lineouts went summer dormant, an unattractive trait, although 90% were just fine. So if you are just looking for a pretty garden flower, I would suggest waiting a few years until the price comes down. BUT IF YOU ARE A HYBRIDIZER WANTING TO MAKE FLOWERS WITH GORGEOUS FACES AND FANCY EDGES AND GOOD SCAPES AND BUDCOUNT AND INSTANT REBLOOM, AND AN UNUSUALLY LARGE PERCENTAGE OF “KEEPER” AND INTRODUCTION QUALITY FLOWERS, YOU WILL WANT THIS PLANT!!! Or to say it another way, I believe that IF YOU COULD ONLY BUY ONE MORE PLANT FOR HYBRIDIZING FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, THIS ONE SHOULD BE IT! Those who know me well would likely say that I am not an exclamation point kind of person, but I have never seen anything like this for breeding. It seems to work with everything I put it on, no matter the size or color, and improves them all. Note the diversity in its parentage (especially the genetics of REPEAT THE SOUNDING JOY), which helps explain why it will breed such a wide range of colors, including purples, roses, hot pinks, lavenders, etc. plus eyes. It works with any size (most of its kids are in the 6-7” range, but only because I don’t have larger things to put it with), and improves whatever you are working with. This is the introduction that might put me out of business because many using it will find that it “levels the playing field” among hybridizers (i.e. most beginners will be able to quickly create things as beautiful as those who have been hybridizing for many years). I like to joke that if someone is unable to get an introduction out of this one, they should probably take up a different hobby or line of work. If in doubt as to what to cross it with, use one of my other introductions that has Heartbeat of Heaven in its background or something with Tet Lavender Blue Baby, as line-breeding is often the fastest way to getting something great. Fertile both ways (average pod, easy pollen) and kids have no fertility issues. Why not priced higher if it is that good? While it is a “priceless” hybridizing flower and really lovely outside when at its best and even on its average days, it is not a consistently great garden flower every day.

POLLEN PARENT:

IMPERIOUS REX
(Benz) tet 30" M. Dor (Crushed Cranberry Lace X Paint It Black)
IMPERIOUS REX raises the bar in the color PURPLE.  This 6" gorgeous, fully saturated deep purple has color to rival that of the Siberian Iris. Crystal clear purple color is smooth and even with no trace of distracting veins, halos or midribs…just pure saturated color enhanced by a vivid green throat and a fine black-purple filigree and a wire edge in white. When I saw the substance and ruffling on CRUSHED CRANBERRY LACE I quickly crossed it to my best self-colored purples. This was our most exciting purple crop ever, and the sibs from CRUSHED CRANBERRY LACE X PAINT IT BLACK came in every shade from burgundy to the most intense black purples, many with extreme ruffling, and excellent branching was the norm. IMPERIOUS REX and its best siblings surpass the color found in every deep purple I've seen. Blooms on IMPERIOUS REX are very heavy and sunfast, and look fresh and undamaged after a day in 90° sun.  Plant habit is impeccable with deep blue-green dormant foliage, arrow straight scapes with 3-4 perfectly spaced lateral branches, a terminal cluster and a bud-count of 25. Easily fertile both ways and I am using IMPERIOUS REX heavily and will continue to due so.......SOLD OUT
